Leftover turkey soup

I always have leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, and love finding new ways to use it. This recipe will work with leftover chicken, or even pork.

You will need:

  • leftover turkey, chicken, pork…
  • bok choi
  • ginger
  • lime
  • chilli peppers or chilli oil
  • olive oil (or nothing, if you’re using chilli oil)
  • Chinese noodles
  • fresh garlic
  • stock

bok choi, fresh garlic, ginger and chilli peppers

In a non-stick pot, drizzle the olive oil or the chilli oil. When it’s warm but not sizzling, drop in the ginger, chopped up in tiny pieces; the fresh garlic, sliced; the chilli pepper, is you’re not using chilli oil and the leftover chicken. Sear everything for a few minutes taking care that it doesn’t burn, then add as much stock as you want. Let it cook for at least five minutes, then add the noodles and cook for as much as they need (check the packaging). At the end, add the bok choi, turn off the heat and let it rest for five to ten minutes.

Sliced bok choi would make a lovely stamp 🙂 I’ll do that next time, when I’m less hungry!

Pour the soup over one or two lime wedges for an extra layer of flavour.



About Full Of Daisies

I am permanently in love. Things I like: purple, pasta, silk, autumn, the smell of mould, candles, cachi, having friends, water, new things, rice, eggs (all eggs!), fresh grass, olive trees, shiny things, glitter, hanging objects, windcatchers, wind, couscous, wasabi, carnivores, presents, snow, leaves, orchids, feathers, cappelletti, meat, fruit (all fruit), more del gelso (Morus alba L.), pigs, candles, christmas, polenta fritta!, separating egg whites from yokes in my hands, cartoons, dragons, the ocean, nudibranchi, cows, mercury (the metal), cosmos (the flowers), thunderstorms, Mika, turtles, acquariums, green and blue (mixed), siccamores, spring, snails, 24, porc with a sweet sauce (apple, cranberry, tomatoes jam), looking at a swimming pool upsidedown and underwater, english accent, open-minded people, driving, blue skies, checkered tablecloths, butterflies, books and cartoons in rhyme, painting eggs, the star-shadows that football players have, silver, laughing, Vivaldi, bells and chimes, white and purple, creating. Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
